Let me slightly alter John's first sentence:
Did you ever notice the strong relationship between the traits of
great leaders and the traits of great -parents-?
Don't virtually all of the items on Trond's list (LO6319) also
characterize the parents we wish we had or the parents we wish we were?
I agree these are good traits for leaders, parents, and everyone. I want
to know how does one help to create leaders in an organization. In my
organization I am responsible to develop a model of supervision/management
that describes how supervisors can be leaders and encourage everyone to be
leaders. I am also to develop training that teaches them how to do this.
So much of what I read (such as these list of leadership traits) is in the
ideal world. I believe people can be taught skills that will support the
development of these traits. What is your experience in making this
concrete and pratical?
